WHAT’S A SPIEDIE?
As our famous t-shirts will tell you, it’s a tasty treat of marinated meat, char-broiled and fed on Italian sliced bread.
Cubed meat of about 1 – 1 ½” marinated in Salamida State Fair Spiedie Sauce for at least 24 hours, skewered and then cooked on a grill. Traditionally Spiedies are served on a slice of Italian bread but now commonly served on sub rolls.
Where did the term "Spiedie" originate?
The term "spiedie" comes from the Italian word spiedo meaning spit or spiedini referring to cubes or balls of meat cooked on a skewer.
What's the best way to cook a Spiedie?
Marinate your favorite kind of meat in Salamida State Fair Spiedie Sauce for at least 24 hours. Depending on how flavorful you want your Spiedies depends on your marinating time. The longer you marinate them the stronger they will be. We recommend 2 – 3 days for the best flavor but anything over 24 hours is good. Skewer the meat on to skewers (metal rods) and cook over a grill for approximately 12 minutes depending on the temperature of your grill. Take the skewers of meat off the grill and squeeze a slice of Italian bread over the meat sliding it off the skewer on to the bread.
What kind of meat should I use?
When Spiedies were first originated lamb was used but today chicken and pork have become the most popular choice. Salamida State Fair Spiedie Sauce tastes great on any kind of meat so feel free to experiment with any of your favorite kinds of meat.
